Tuttle scored 11 points and grabbed five rebounds while handing out three assists in a 73-54 win over Virginia Tech in Cancun. Tuttle then went 7-of-11 from the field and scored a game-high 19 points in a 61-42 victory over Northwestern. Tuttle put a capper on the week with his 17th career double-double (17 pts, 10 rbs.) in a 55-50 home win over Richmond.

The Sheffield, Iowa, native has scored in double figures in all seven games this season. Tuttle has scored in double figures in 24 consecutive games. He has scored in double figures in 66 career games for the Panthers.
